is it a potential solution for non Ex car (without the build-in handfree system) for the phone, i-pod or MP3 players and son on ?

I have not seen this unit before but I will look into it. I have an ES, and will have to check if it will work with my Samsung F490. I'm currently considering the Parrot MK6100 as an alternative, plus a bluetooth dongle for my iPod. The Parrot works out quite a bit cheaper but you have to drive the iPod from the iPod itself and there is no 3.5mm line-in option for my other half to connect her non-iPod player. Not quite as cool either IMO.

If I've understood correctly what I have read in the ICE threads and wiki, with either unit you also need an Iso2Car lead for interrupting the speakers for the Bluetooth phone calls

and a separate Connects2 box for playing music via bluetooth or iPod through front and rear speakers. The handsfree kit only uses the front speakers for voice calls, fitting details here

Hope I've got this right.

Not for sure, I've understood that you can make a direct FM link in option : no special wiring required but it play music and phone like a radio station ...http://www.bluetouch.de/PDF/Manual/GBmounting.pdf

maybe somebody could tell me if I can buy one ?

The FM modulation will allow you to play music without any special wiring, you will need to either buy the FM modulator separately or buy it as part of a kit (Option BT0014).

To use the unit to make phone calls you will either need an external speaker (Option BT0012) or you will need to wire it in to your headunit (Options BT0010 or BT0011).

This is how I understood the manual you linked to, hope this helps. I am still waiting to hear if my F490 will be compatible.
